Rogue email

I just almost got suckered…

See the attached pic of an email I just received.

It is a VERY convincing facsimile of a quite valid, seemingly normal email I would receive from my many subscriptions.

HOWEVER, in actuality, had I clicked on any of the links in the email it would have taken me to who knows what kind of computer trouble.

In hovering over the links in the email, I noted they do not go to Rather, they go to several differing sites that I am sure would unleash all sorts of malware on my PC.

The first thing that tipped me off, is I do not subscribe to any news articles via, then I noted the email address it was referring to is not one I use at, and then of course, the mis-directed links.

Just a heads up to be ever-vigilant in your PC practices!
If anything seems even just the slightest bit ‘off’, STOP! Double-check first!!
And remember, if you still can’t get to the bottom of it, you can always go to the site ( in this case) directly on your own and look for the info they were sending you via the email – you just can’t trust implicitly that who they say they are is actually the case anymore.
